“Square-cut or pear-shaped, these rocks don’t lose their shape!
” Marilyn Monroe’s dazzling performance of “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
carries a simple truth: Whatever you want to say, nothing expresses it
quite like a diamond, and few things last as long (diamonds are
considered unbreakable, after all). Although in 2009 the industry was,
unsurprisingly, hit by a dramatic slump, the latest annual report by De Beers
the world's largest diamond producer, predicts a speedy recovery by the
end of 2010, suggesting that, as ever, these particular gems are among
the world’s most resilient—and coveted—commodities. As with any gift,
choosing the perfect rock can be painstaking, but since December 2009, Bokks
a new luxury concierge service based in London’s Mayfair, has been
making things easier. The Bokks team kindly selected this portfolio of
adamantine presents from its impressive inventory of high-end brands.
